Which coupon should Bryana use?

Bryana has a problem, she is offered 2 types of coupons. One is a 20% off and the other is $20 off. The item she is going to buy is a Widescreen Television that costs $1499.99 and she doesn't know which coupon to choose. Lets do some math and see which is the better choice for her.


20% off of $1499.99

--------------------------

1,499.99 x .20 = 299.99

1,499.99 - 299.99 = 1,200


$20 off of $1499.99

--------------------------

1499.99 - 20 = 1,479.99


After doing some math. We came to the conclusion that the 20% off is the better coupon for Bryana, because the 20% off over the $20 off different in savings is $279.99.
